State Farm Arena Parking

State Farm Arena (formerly Philips Arena) is home to the NBA Atlanta Hawks and the WNBA Atlanta Dreams teams. The arena’s address is at 1 State Farm Dr, Atlanta, GA 30303. In addition to basketball games, you will find plenty of concerts and events at the arena to enjoy.


Here are the parking tips for driving to the venue to catch a basketball game or event!


Official Parking around State Farm Arena


There are several parking lots that are all nearby State Farm Arena to use for a basketball game or concert. Those lots include the Georgia World Congress Center Red / Green Deck, Centennial Yards, Sapphire Deck, and Ruby Lot. Visit the official State Farm Arena parking page for the most up to date information on parking directly next to the arena. Also, parking rates in these lots will vary depending on multiple factors.


My Recommendation on Parking + Experience with SpotHero

I always recommend fans visit SpotHero for several reasons. First, I’ve been using SpotHero for years and tend to save 30% (or more) on parking since I can see the prices on the screen. Therefore, I don’t choose the lot nearest the venue, which is the most expensive option. Second, I can reserve my parking space ahead of time, so I don’t need to drive around looking for parking. When I travel to a venue, chances are I’m not familiar with the roads, which means I want to save time looking for parking. With this service, I drive directly to the parking garage I reserved and scan my barcode on the app to get in.


I’ve never had a problem using this service, so I always recommend it to others.


State Farm Arena Handicap Parking Spots

ADA parking spots are at Philips Arena Lot, Centennial, and CNN parking decks at the stadium. Fans must present a valid handicap placard and license plate to leave their vehicles in these spaces. ADA parking can fill up quickly for certain events, so use SpotHero above to reserve a space before driving to the arena. Finally, you can direct any questions on where to find ADA parking to the parking attendants working the garages at the venue.


Can you Tailgate in the Parking Lots?

There is no tailgating in the parking lots at State Farm Arena, but you can visit the local bars before or after a game. Some fan favorite bars include Latitudes Bistro and Lounge, SkyLounge, Park Bar, and Legacy Test Kitchen. In addition to those bars, you can also visit Sidebar, Fellaship, AC Lounge, and Bar210.


Also, be sure to visit the State Farm Arena Bag Policy page to see what you can and can’t bring into the arena.


Should I Take Public Transportation?

The best way to get to the arena via public transportation is to use the MARTA. The MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) has blue and green lines that bring fans directly to the venue. In addition to Marta, fans also use Uber and Lyft to get to and from the arena. The official pick-up and drop-off area at the stadium is at Centennial Olympic Park. 


Also, consider cycling to the venue if you have that option. The traffic around the venue can become congested with cars, especially if there is a Falcons or Atlanta United game next door. Therefore, cycling to and from the venue tends to be the easiest way to get in and out of the stadium.
